Hello fellow crafters :)
I have been trying to branch out of my crafting comfort zone and this is another one of my firsts.
I decided to make a shadow box of my favorite crafty embellishments.
Now for the life of me I could not get the yellow cast off of the photo. My lighting is bad in my apartment and the weather is not good for an outdoor pic.
I started with a craft colored shadow box and painted it brown. I then used a prima cardstock and placed it in the back of the squares. I then used burlap and placed it over the cardstock.
Next in the upper left square I used 2 metal corners from Miriams Crafting supplies. I then took a beautiful Stick Pin from Pinque Peacock and turned it into a dragonfly using my favorite twine. (Trendy Twine). Now in the upper right square I used a wishing well from Prima. My grass is ribbon from 3 Girl JAM and the cute cardinal is from a purchase from Blitzy.
The lower left is a beautiful bloom from Pinque Peacock. I then added a burlap button and butterfly pin and both are Pinque Peacock! The lower right is all prima and websters pages.
These are all things that make me happy:)
I love watching dragonflies, butterflies and birds. I love the old fashioned wells and have always wanted one. I love flowers of all kinds and Pinque Peacock is a joy to work with. The cameo holds my favorite saying. Now to get some of the beautiful flowers, buttons and stick pens head over to pinque peacock!!!!

I love how you created this. I would need a much bigger shadow box to make a pic of all my Pinque Peacock favorites!
